Medical Respite

The Boulevard is one of the original medical respite care facilities in Illinois, dedicated to serving homeless individuals through a continuum of services. We pioneered the model of adapting medical respite for homelessness services, becoming the third such facility in the U.S. in 1994.

Services We Offer

The Boulevard is the only organization of its kind in Illinois: providing coordinated care and a full range of resources for holistic human healing.

Services We Offer

The Boulevard is an ADA-accessible residential facility accepting homeless adults who need time and a safe, clean place to complete their recovery from an acute medical condition. Individuals with an acute medical condition with a secondary mental illness or substance abuse history may be accepted.

Clients referred to The Boulevard must be:

  • Able to participate in their own medical care plan
  • Able to manage basic living skills without assistance
  • Living with an acute medical illness or injury
  • Provided with a 30 day supply of medications/medical supplies


Who Should Come to the Boulevard?

  • Single men and women who are homeless and being discharged from the hospital needing a short term placement (four to six weeks) in order to complete their recovery from a physical illness or injury. The Boulevard is not appropriate for clients requiring long term nursing home care.
  • Patients who can physically care for themselves (e.g. dress, bathe, self-ambulate, attend to personal hygiene and take medication as prescribed), who no longer require bedside nursing care, who can come to the dining room for meals, make their bed, and keep their living space neat. The Boulevard provides support to clients to complete their healing but is not a medical treatment facility.
  • Patients who are mentally stable and those that need assistance with substance abuse issues. The Boulevard is not a psychiatric or substance abuse treatment facility.
  • Patients who understand their care plans and can carry out the measures necessary to implement them with the help of The Boulevard staff, including compliance with medications and returning to their physicians for follow-up care.
  • Patients who are able to live in a communal environment, share a bedroom with four or five roommates, share meals in a common dining room with 44 clients, participate in educational sessions and group meetings (including AA and NA if appropriate) and follow The Boulevard conditions of residency.
